Most Americans will believe that Obama has corrected all the problems being talked about so much lately. Whew! What a guy.

US has been let down by its leadership

"A deal that extends unsustainable tax cuts for 98 per cent of Americans is no victory, writes Nouriel"

If you do realize what is happening and going to happen, you will take steps to safeguard your grandchildren’s future.

Neither Democrats nor Republicans recognize that maintaining a basic welfare state, which is right and necessary in our age of globalization, rapid technological change and demographic pressure, implies higher taxes for the middle class.

Obama knows this all too well - and it's his ultimate goal to make us all, both makers and low information voters, slaves to the state.

“Maintaining a basic welfare state... Is both right and necessary?”. Sorry, that’s not the issue. We have gone light-years beyond a basic welfare state, we’re being forced to live in a state of basic welfare (where we’re allowed fewer and fewer employment or business opportunities). Our welfare “safety net” has “transformed” into America’s burial shroud.

Americans who bothered to be informed woke up years ago.

Roubini is an arrogant elitist who believes that the State is a necessary “good.” It is best to ignore his pro-government blathering.

Yeah, well most Americans wouldn’t know how to wipe their asses if it weren’t for those stupid toilet paper commercials with the bears!

FTA “Republican voter ... being on average older and poorer than a Democrat voter “ . . .

I love this line. This is the chasm, the gulf, the split in America, the source of the low-information voter. they think give me mine ‘cuz I don’t give a flying fishcake.

Democrats are in positions to benefit from government largesse at EVERY level of the system. That’s what they do. It is who the they are. How many of your friends had a lifetime goal of getting a gub’mint/tax dollar paid job?
Having a government job was a last resort, not a premiere goal.

Teacher’s Unions, government employees of all stripes, AFSCME members even SEIU and Teamsters are representing Government employees.

It’s always been the “mainstream” media that researched and informed Americans about more complex problems.

Now “news” is all smash mouth, brainless political wannabes.

Fox should replace Sean once a month with a real discussion/debate group that can hash out issues and problems facing the country w/o political correctness ruling the day. Like Buckley. I doubt there are any intellecutals smart enough to be able to do that level of respectful and informed discussion.
